>> CURRENTLY READING <<
Shadow Call (Kaitan Chronicles, #2)The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well

Shadow Call by Adrianne Strickland & Michael Miller (ARC)
I couldn't help signing up for the blog tour and after re-reading the first book I'm now powering through this sequel! Just like Shadow Run it began a bit awkward but once more I found myself hit with a shocking twist about page 40 and now the story is off and running!

The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking (HBK)
After reading a book on Lagom I wanted more in a similar vein and picked up books on Hygge and Lykke. I'm not connecting to Hygge as much as Lagom, but it's still an interesting and relaxing read.


>> JUST FINISHED <<
Wake Up, Sleeping Beauty, Vol. 1 (Wake Up, Sleeping Beauty, #1)
Wake Up, Sleeping Beauty vol. 1 by Megumi Morino (PBK)
5 Stars. I brought this home from the library and read it without even glancing at the summary, and don't let the romantic title and summary fool you: this is first and foremost an original and rather chilling GHOST STORY. With its mysterious premise and realistic main male character, the start of the eerie story of shut-in Shizu and scaredy-cat Tetsu was an engrossing one that found me reluctant to put it down and finishing well past bedtime. I can't wait to get my hands on the next volume and see how things progress!


>> ON HOLD <<
The Chestnut King (100 Cupboards Book 3)
The Chestnut King by N.D. Wilson (PBK)
During my 3-week January-February flu I decided to finally read the entire 100 Cupboards series. Books 1 & 2 went well, but I've been struggling for about a month now to finish this final Book 3 as I don't think I'm going to like the foreshadowed series end. Still, I'm less than 100 pages away and feel I really should finish it eventually, I've come this far.


>> [POSSIBLY] READING NEXT <<
(subject to change with my ever-shifting reading whims)
The Little Book of Lykke: The Danish Search for the World's Happiest People
The Little Book of Lykke by Meik Wiking (HBK)
After Hygge comes Lykke!


So what are you reading this week?
